What I liked to see is that all the vfx elements from the motion pictures have been saved as well. Is the shot of the Klingon ship from heart of glory from Tmp? If so even those elements have survived!
Yep. That's the original miniature photography done at Apogee in 1979 by Doug Smith under the supervision of John Dykstra. Notice also that they shot against black instead of bluescreen like ILM preferred. They over-exposed the model to create a matte pass -- essentially a luma key instead of a chroma key.
